I have alligned a project consisting of 5 doc.-files. So, I now do have it as a TM (as pjt-file). The clients needs a cleaned TM thought. Could anyone tell me how to convert that into a "cleaned TM"? Thanks!

Open the project in WinAlign and go to File - Export Project. This will create a translation memory in TXT format. You can send this file to your client or import into Workbench.

By the way, "cleaned" usually refers to a file, not TM. You can clean a translated file (into a TM, if you need) but you can only import or export TM.

Thanks Hynek! Aug 23, 2006

thanks a lot Hynek!

Indeed, I was quite irritated by that "cleaned TM" he asked for, and thought there is a possibility to clean up a tm (it then being converted into word, or excel or whatever, showing just the translation units in both languages - I remember seeing something similar in Wordfast, so I thought that's what he might have ment). I've done it as suggested, and have sent the txt-file to the client. Thanks for your help!
